Neopian Times Editorial Database
The Neopian Times Editorial is a (usually) weekly column hosted by The Neopets Team that answers questions direct from Neopians. Unfortunately, these Q&A's are not easily searched on the Neopets site, so we've created our own searchable database. Convenient for looking up past answers!

Messages keep disapeering from my guild, yet I am not deleting them, why is this?
If a person posts a particularly bad message, we will send them an official warning and delete all the messages that person has posted, this includes guilds and noticeboard posts.
Will NeoPets merchandise ever be sold in stores?
Yes, we are going to be doing a limited test next weekend in a few Southern California locations. More details will be given out on New Features, and (fingers crossed) if all goes well we will be looking to expand to other locations.
Where are the Discount Cards?
Oops... The Discount cards will be linked to from the Space Station very shortly :)
I tried to send a neomail to someone who wasn't my Neofriend and it said that I couldn't send the Neomail because that person wasn't my neofriend. What does that mean?
It means that person has chosen to only receive Neomails from people that have added to their Neofriends list. This is one of the privacy options you can choose by clicking on the Block link in the Neomail area.
When I'm on Neopets, I never get any advertisment pop-ups, but my friend does. Why is this??
You friend must be running something else because we NEVER have pop up windows. Both Adam and myself despise them and we will not allow them on NeoPets. We try to keep our advertising to a minimum and make it as unobtrusive as possible. The only things that really pop up in a new window are there to make navigation easier such as when you buy an item, are waiting for a battle, or are playing a flash game.
What is the difference between 9-12, 13-17, and 18-21? What happens if you REALLY love neopets (like me:P) and you become older than 21? Do you boot us out of the game?
The different age groups are 8 and under, 9-12, 13-17 and 18 plus. We have to ask your age group when you sign up due to COPPA regulations. These are laws designed to protect young internet users and they affect what you can and can't do on NeoPets. If you are under 13, you need your parents to give their permission for you to chat with other users, or take part in any sponsor activities.
Lol, no we do not stop people playing when they turn 21, we have many adult players (even a number of grandmothers and grandfathers) who enjoy playing NeoPets, and can continue to do so for as long as they wish.
What do I do if I accidently clicked log out? How do I get back?
The 'Log Out' button on the yellow side bar is there for people that share a computer with other NeoPets players, for example in a library, internet cafe, school, or at home if your brothers/sisters/mum/dad play. To change to a new account, or to log back in with your account, simply click on the 'Log In' button on the yellow side bar. Then enter your username and password and you are logged in as normal.
Will Neoquest still be up after five people have beaten the insanelevel?
Yes, NeoQuest will still be up, we are just giving special prizes to the first five peoplethat complete it on the hardest level.
You began a story about Maraqua and the pirates just before Maraqua was destroyed...it said the story was "to be continued..." Are you going to continue it?
Apologies, we did mean to continue this story, but had so many other things to work on at the same time. It got pushed so far back that we have decided to go straight into anew more interesting plot and possibly return to the ruins of Maraqua at a later date.
How can you tell if your age group has been changed when it's your birthday?
If you have just recently turned 13, you will be able to access the messageboards (click on 'Neochat' in the yellow side bar) and send messages to other people via Neomail. This is the only time you will notice a change following a birthday. If for some reason your account hasn't been updated and you do not have access to these areas following your 13th birthday, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your username.
Smuggler's cove is very cool but I wanted to know that is there any way to know when the items will be restocked. Are they restocked at the restock times?
No, I am afraid it is very unclear when the Smugglers manage to get hold of anything, it is just whenever something interesting gets washed up on the shore, or they manage to get their paws on something.
To get a bank account you need to have a job but I don't have a clue how to get a job. HELP!?
When you set up your Bank Account, you need to give a job. This job is a made up thing such as Wocky Warden, it doesn't matter what you put, just choose whatever you would prefer to be.
Why don't you charge people to play NeoQuest? Then it will limit the number of people who play and you can keep it up all the time!
NeoPets is completely free and we want to keep it that way. We do not want to start charging people for any activity on the site as it is not fair to those that do not have access to credit cards or cannot afford to pay for it. NeoQuest will be available 24 hours a day soon, just bear with us, and don't worry as you will NEVER have to pay for anything on NeoPets!
If I have suggestions or bug reports towards improving any of the flash games (such as Pterattack, for example) where can I mail those?
You can report any bugs to email@example.com. Be sure to include a full explaination of the error that you found and your username so we can get back to you for more details if necessary. If you have any suggestions for new games or improvements, please email them to Gameideas@neopets.com.
When you conplete a quest from the brain tree you said you can get splinters. What are splinters and if your pet gets then what will happen to it?
Brain Tree splinters are a type of weapon that you can equip your Neopet with and use in the Battledome!
Does every neopet get its own day to honour it?
Yes, every Neopet has a special day, you can see when your favourite Neopet's day is by checking the Neopian Calendar. You can find this by going to 'Worlds' and then 'Calendar'.
Can you get rid of your Neodeck if you do not want it anymore?
No, You cannot delete it, but you can remove all your cards from it and just never go to it again.
Once you've used the map pieces, can you use them again?
No, once you trade in your map pieces and collect your prize, they will be taken away from you.
Is the Rainbow Fountain ever going to come back, and if so, when do you expect it to be up?
Yes, we are planning to bring back the Rainbow Fountain and make it available to everyone, it should happen either next week or the week after.
When was NeoPets founded?
NeoPets first went live on November 15th 1999, so we are almost 2 years old! Hurrah!
I signed up back in 1999 when I was 12, and I'm goingto turn 14 in less than a month. My account is stillon the younger age group restrictions, and hasn'tchanged. Is there anything I can do to fix it?
Yes, if your age doesn't automatically update your account when you turn 13, send your username and a brief explanation to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I was looking at someone's record and it said they had a Neopian Times trophy. How do you get those!!!!????????
If you write a story, article or create a comic and it gets published in The Neopian Times, you earn yourself this rather attractive trophy for your cabinet! To send in your entries, e-mail email@example.com.
What does it mean when it says, "You have exceeded the total size limit of 250 Kilobytes. You have used 280," in the picture gallery for the guild?
This means you have uploaded too many pictures for your guild. We had to set a limit on the amount of images that you could store in your guild. To add more pictures, I am afraid you need to delete some of the older images you have already uploaded.
Where is the Spooky food shop?
There isn't a Spooky food shop, instead you get the Spooky food as a reward from Edna the Witch if you help her out.
Can you get items in NeoQuest that will go into your Inventory on 'Your Items' or are all the items based on staying in the game itself?
All the items you find in the NeoQuest game remain in the game, you cannot take them out of the world.
When you change a pet using a morphing potion does it change its likes and dislikes to that of the species or does just the picture change?
Its likes and dislikes will stay the same, but it will adopt any natural attributes that the new species has, such as a Scorchio's resistance to fire, or a Skeith's ability to eat anything.
I received a Neomail from the NeoPets team telling me my account will befrozen if I spam the message boards. What exactly is "spamming"?
"Spamming" is when you repeatedly type the same thing over and over again. Normally it is something mundane such as 'Hi, hi' etc. It is extremely frustrating for the people who are trying to have a conversation on the message boards, so is not permitted. If you continue to do so, despite having a warning, your account may be frozen!
I want a Robot Jetsam, but how do you turn your pet into a robot?
You need to collect all nine pieces of the secret lab map so that you have access to the secret laboratory. Then you must go to the secret lab and fire the ray gun at your Neopet. One of the side effects of the ray gun will turn your Neopet into a robot version, although it may also do something hideous to your Neopet so be careful!
I'm extra special!
What's a peak period? Why is NeoQuest always down during it, and will it ever stay up?
A peak period is a time when the site is most busy. NeoQuest is still in very early stages and we are re-working it at the moment. The problem is that at peak too many people try to play NeoQuest and it starts to slow down the site. Rather than have the whole site ground to a halt, we have to take Neoquest down temporarily. This is not a permanent thing, and should be resolved shortly.
If I am 12 now and I am going to have my birthday in another 2 days. When I have my birthday would it be updated to an account that is 13-17 years old or the account would remain 8-12 years old account?
It will update automatically and you will have full access to the site. Happy Birthday, by the way :)
